quote >> big news for expectant mothers who use over the counter pain meds may not have an increased risk of miscarrying their child. some studies have pointed to an increased risk about the time they conceive or in early pregnancy but researchers writing in the journal obstetrics and gynecology say they don't see a risk. ethically they can't do clinical trails on pregnant women where they randomly assign them to take or not to take medication so studies like this one are part of larger studies and the women are surveyed on their own use. experts recommend that women limit their use during pregnancy, if possible. and they say the safe e option for pain relief is acetaminophen. >> anybody at this hour is probably a coffee drinker. what's going on? >> here's a good reason to feel good about having that next cup of joe. new research suggesting that moderate coffee drinkers have a lower risk of heart failure. according to beth israel medical center in boston, drinking two cups a day can reduce your risk

for people? there is something that makes us hesitant to reach out to others. some of us can take this idea of independence to an extreme. i think this is probably some place in newfoundland, a remote shore of canada. we have come to believe that reaching out to others is a sign of weakness. was he asking for help and support as a vulnerability instead of a necessary strength. so if you agree with me that connections are the key to a good life, i would like you to explore with me how technology, and in particular, how that works can actually help. i would like to tell you about ties in the online network service. that is installed on every b-top computer in san francisco. this knowledge built on 20 years of connections to secure the future. it creates personal, private, secure online networks. here is what happened personal network looks like. and joe and her daughter created a network together, and what they did, they created a network in part because guildhall has an advance in her experience with cancer, and they wanted to coordinate the care and the connections and bring people closer t
that happens is people come in who have been using technology, and they have their own systems for use in it, and we let them. we do not try to change how people are using it. an example of that is my grandmother. she was a wonderful baker. i miss her, but i miss her baked goods more. she never had used a still in the old country that had thermostat. she would turn the stove on all the way to broil, and it would heat up like a furnace, and then she would turn it off, and then put her stuff in and cook it. if it got too cold, she would turn it on again. it drove my parents crazy, but she made wonderful food. she was never going to learn this technology, but she had adapted to it. we recognize that people do that. if people have something that works, you leave it alone. another issue that people have on computers is -- and it is a real frustration for a lot of seniors -- that things do not show up in the same place. we try to set up people's computers so that it is recognizable. if you are using a macintosh, and it has the dock that has all the controls on it, you set it up so that it is alway
